Electronic Signatures in Australia

In Australia, electronic signatures are considered legally valid and are governed by the Electronic Transactions Act 1999 (“ETA”) and the Electronic Transactions Regulations 2020 (“ETR”), which are federal laws, as well as by corresponding laws in each State and Territory.

The Electronic Transactions Act (ETA) outlines the criteria for valid electronic signatures, consent, and document retention under Australian Commonwealth law. These requirements typically apply when dealing with Commonwealth government entities or conducting transactions under specific Commonwealth legislation. As Australia is a federation, each State and Territory also has its own electronic signature legislation (known as the "Local ETA"), which aligns with the ETA but may have different exceptions and restrictions. The relevant Local ETA will govern the submission of documents to State/Territory governments and their instrumentalities.
